Sorry about the delay. It worked pretty good, and allowed for a bunch of room in there. However, I only used the Ipe on the front as the rotors were off. Went to the rear, and because the rotors were on, and I did not have long enough bolts, ended up jacking up the rotor Very carefully putting a folded up rag on the jack and jacked up on the rotor.

Basically a full tank, put stuff in the trunk for weight and had two people in the car on level jack stands. Jack it up just to where it lifts and torque the bolts. The rear cam bolt is impossible to torque to spec. because you can't get a socket in there.
